Automatically Sending Email Reports and Notifications

This feature applies only to agentless scans and deployments initiated from the console; it does not apply to agents that may also be using this template.

Messages containing scan reports or deployment reports can be automatically emailed by Security Controls. You simply configure the scan template, the deployment template, the machine group, or the machine of your choosing so that reports are automatically sent each time the template or group is used. You can designate which reports should be sent and to whom the reports should be sent.

In order to use this feature you must enable email operations.


You can configure scan templates to automatically:

  • Send PDF versions of reports upon completion of a scan

You can configure deployment templates to automatically:

  • Notify users of pending patch deployments
  • Send a report upon completion of a deployment
